Maritime museum comes alive

Following the performance White Sea, the rubberbodies collective will now be revisiting the performance material and presenting their new work at the Malta Maritime Museum in Birgu

Theatre troupe the rubberbodies collective worked hand in hand with Liam Gauci, curator of the Malta Maritime Museum while shaping their most recent work – White Sea; Bahar Abjad, a non-verbal performance which played at St James Cavalier during early July.

Gauci acted as an unofficial ‘consultant’ for the production, providing the troupe with stories and facts connected to the maritime history of Malta.

Now, the troupe return to the venue to create a unique experience of history, art and creativity, as ‘Lore of the sea – immemorial waters’ will present a 45-minute performance alongside a tour of the Museum itself on September 9, 10.

The tour is linked to the performance as it will focus on memories, stories, myths and facts which the collective is using as a base for the visual-performance.

Tickets are being sold at €12 and €10 for Heritage Malta members, and are available from all Heritage Malta sites. There is a limited seating of 50 persons per night, thus the audience is encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.
